CEO of BlackBerry, Thorsten Heins has just announced that BBM is coming to both iOS 6 and Android ICS+ devices. The app will be completely free and will include the basic messaging and group features initially, but the company hopes to add BBM channels, video, voice, and screen sharing at some point. Heins wasn't specific about when the apps will release but they should land some time in the summer. At the event Heins said:

It's time to bring BBM to a greater audience, no matter what mobile device they carry. Why are we doing this now? It's a statement of confidence, so strong that we are confident that BBM can become an independent messaging solution.

Would you use BBM on Android or iOS? Or will you stick with another messaging app? Let us know in the comments.
